Description
  • Abstract

    The National Survey of Fishing, Hunting, and Wildlife-Associated Recreation (FHWAR) is a series conducted by the Census Bureau for the United States Department of the Interior Fish and Wildlife Service. This collection contains information regarding fishing, hunting, and other wildlife-associated activities for 1996. The survey is conducted every 5 years and includes 3 waves. Wave 1 is household-based and consists of a screener with the possibility of detailed interviews asking about a person's hunting, fishing or wildlife-watching activities and the likelihood that they will hunt, fish or watch wildlife. Wave 2 and Wave 3 are person-based, detailed interviews in which respondents were selected for the sample based on data collected from the screener in the first wave. The Sportsman and Wildlife-Watching surveys for wave 2 and 3 gathered specific information about respondents' recreational participation, including species hunted, fished, and watched; the state in which these activities occurred; number of trips taken; days of participation; and expenditures for food, lodging, transportation, and equipment. The questions asked throughout the 3 waves have been organized by topic into 3 datasets. The three datasets, (1) Screening, (2) Sportsman (Fishing and Hunting), and (3) Wildlife Watching, may contain responses from people surveyed during multiple waves. Demographic variables include sex, age, race, marital status and parental relations, education level, household income, state of residence, and type of residential area (e.g., urban or rural).
  • Abstract
